Knowledgeable attorney at an affordable price
Elizabeth Marum is unmatched - with her extensive, in-depth knowledge of family law, her passion and drive to work through the tough issues, her ability to compromise when appropriate, and her compassion for families, she is a powerhouse to have on your side. Her rates are comparable to other attorneys in the area and she uses her paralegals wisely. I hired Elizabeth Marum to handle my divorce and I am very happy that I chose her to represent me.

Making a Difficult Time Easier
Honestly, I wouldnt use anyone else. My experience was as great as a terrible time in my life could have been. Ms. Marum gave brilliant guidance and offered solutions that I wouldnt have thought of otherwise. She was able to get to the bottom of what I truly wanted and needed for my young son and I. There were very delicate issues dealing with addiction, but Ms. Marum was able to navigate those issues well and provided support for the fact that I wanted to give my ex every opportunity to see our son, but wanted the security of making sure that relationship was a safe and healthy one. I honestly would recommend Ms. Marum to anyone navigating a difficult or complex divorce.

My Divorce Case
In 2011, I realized that i urgently needed a Divorce Attorney, Ms Elizabeth Marum was highly recommended to me, by another Attorney. I had attempted to retain other lawyers without success because of the difficult nature of my case. Ms. Marum was affordable, and very professional in dealing with my difficult case. There were several aspects of the case that she handled proficiently. I was very pleased with the outcome of the case. I highly recommend Ms. Elizabeth Marum to anyone seeking a divorce.

Great lawyer!
Ms. Marum helped me with a post divorce case involving my divorce agreement. She won my case and was not intimidated by opposing counsel's experience and their attempt to bully their way through the case. She was very knowledgable in the area of divorce law and this showed throughout my case and trial. I've hired roughly 5 attorneys in the past as Ms Marum was by the best at responding and keeping me informed. I would highly recommend Ms Marum and her firm.

Rice vs. Clark
Elizabeth Marum came highly recommended from a friend and after my case, I understand why. She was very up front about how my case my proceed, the information that she would need from me, the possible outcomes, and ever detail on the pricing of everything regarding my out of pocket costs. She built a very strong case for me and in the end I received a favorable outcome from the judge. I have referred her to several friends and would use her services again in the future if ever needed.

Excellent Attorney
Ms. Marum handled my divorce, and made what could have been a very painful process much easier. She replied promptly to all of my questions, handled all of the paperwork with no issues, and in general made it as simple as possible. Would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Single Dad keeps custody using Ms. Elizabeth Marum
The custody of my child was challenged, by the child`s mother after two years of being the custodial parent. My attorney was Ms. Elizabeth Marum who was recommended to me by a trusted professional in the legal field. Ms. Elizabeth Marum first had the case immediately transferred to the original (proper) Family Court Judge in Marietta. She then recommended, arranged and negotiated a successful `Mediation`, without having to go to Family Court. Ms.Marum`s skills as an attorney allowed me to maintain custody and actually closed loopholes of important parental decisions in Education, Church, Major Medical, and Visitation in my favor. Also, she completed the total process in a timely and professional manner, while staying (perfectly) in a reasonable budget, so I never went outside the initial financial estimate. I recommend her services to everyone, especially to Father`s, since we are challenged, usually more so, in custody cases.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Marum was the opposing attorney for a time on one of my prior cases. When she was replaced (due to leaving that firm), I missed her! I found Ms. Marum to be professional, intelligent, and easy to work with. She absolutely advocated for her client's wishes, but did so without resorting to some of the unnecessary tactics attorneys use on each other. To reiterate, Ms. Marum is a true advocate for her clients. She appeared to have taken the time to educate the client on what to expect, understand her client's wants, and educate herself on how to best attempt a successful outcome. If I were in need of a family law attorney, Ms. Marum would be on my list of potential hires. ~ Kem Eyo"
